, the patient has high levels of cholesterol built up on the artery walls. jim goldenetz: my father had passed away during bypass surgery in 1986. so i was somewhat aware-- more than most-- that there could be problems with high cholesterol. well, cholesterol is a fatty substance that is in... produced by our bodies or ingested through certain products such as meats. eggs have a lot of cholesterol, for example. so if you were to really describe this molecule called cholesterol, it's a waxy, lipid-type substance that is very similar to fat. the body needs cholesterol to function normally. it is present in all the cell membranes and it helps produce many hormones. but it only takes a small amount of cholesterol to meet the body's needs. hodis: cholesterol is a catchall term of which there are many, many particles that float in the bloodstream that make up this cholesterol measurement. each one of these carries its own risk and, potentially, its own protective function also. high-density lipoprotein (hdl) carries cholesterol from the cells to the liver for removal from the body. that's why it's c
of that stature in film. (jim jarmusch) for us in new york at the time, in the late seventies, it was an idea kind of related to the music scene at the time, which was that we are not virtuoso filmmakers, but we have something we'd like to express. and that desire to express it was more important than having a more professional attitude, or having a lot of experience. (jim jarmusch) when i started thinking about "stranger than paradise," there were severe limitations as far as how much money i could get to make a film like that. (jim stark) "stranger than paradise" cash cost was $160,000, and it grossed many times more than that. jim's pacing was very slow and deliberate. there was a kind of irony in how he approached the world, which was not typical of filmmaking. there's a meandering approach that lets you decide what you thought was important about the story. the style of the movie and the sensibility of it were clearly emanated from the personality of jim jarmusch but also happened to be perfect for the financial circumstances and constraints under which he had to work. the idea of using actor
think he thought that america deserved what he was doing to us. of course, at that time, we had jim crow south, you know- we still had a jim crow south at that time. yeah. >> you see, that's what i mean by empowerment- he had to empower the african-americans so that they could then make the decisions. i understand that. >> this other step that you are taking, where you differ from your father and the others, is this then- it doesn't seem to me, from what i'm hearing, that this is actually a swing back, if you wanted to call it that, toward original islam doctrine and so forth, as it is a moving forward into maybe another arena. am i on track with that, or- >> well, yes. to me, the change is a moving forward into real islam, but it is also a moving forward into the world of reality. and i don't think the qur'an, or the religion given to us as given by- as it is preached by muslims of the world could have brought about this change in me, or in many of those like me- i don't think it could have done it. it took what that man did, it took his trick to break the grip of what we thought the wo
's in watsonville. here, we have some romaine lettuce from salinas. >> for jim mills, life is quite simply all about produce, and every day, his sacramento warehouse receives tons of it from just about every region in the golden state. >> broccoli from salinas. over here, some artichokes from watsonville and castroville. fennel from a local farm over in yolo. >> but the bulk of this produce doesn't stay here very long. within a few hours, much of it is trucked out to restaurants and businesses in northern california, some delivered by mills himself. he spends hours on the road, visiting farmers and chefs, taking produce from one to the other, and educating both parties along the way. >> may need a look at the progress of a particular crop or report back, maybe some feedback, to the farmer about how the chefs are using it or what they might be looking for in the near future. >> in many ways, produce express and people like jim mills are the link between 1,300 different restaurants in northern california and produce from all over the golden state. today's visit took us to del rio botanical farm in yol
